TELEHEALTH: SERV ING PAT I ENT S IN THESE TROUBL ING T IMES
What is telehealth? You may be wondering what exactly telehealth is. Essentially, it is a way for us to make sure that our patients are still receiving the highest possible quality of care they need from a remote location. Telehealth services can be accessed via your smartphone or computer, and you will be able to perform your PT treatments from the comfort of your own home during this quarantine. You will also be able to track your progress and see how you are improving throughout your treatments – without coming directly to our clinic. At iMotion Physical Therapy, our telehealth services offer live consultation where you can meet and chat with your physical therapist about your treatment plan.
In light of the COVID-19 pandemic that has been causing numerous health care facilities to shut down, we as medical professionals are diligently trying to serve our patients in the best ways possible without risking the spread of this disease. Because of this, telehealth services are the best possible option for us at this time. By providing care for our patients virtually, as opposed to in person, we are able to keep both our patients and PT providers safe. For more information on our telehealth services and how they may benefit you, feel free to call us at iMotion Physical Therapy, schedule a telehealth appointment with our website chatbot, OR go to our telehealth appointment page link to schedule your virtual appointment!

At any point you can also message one of our physical therapists to ask questions or get advice about your condition. That being said, there are numerous conditions that can still be treated and improved via telehealth services, including, but not limited to: • Arthritis pain • Back pain • Headaches/migraines • Post-surgical rehab • Respiratory issues • Sports medicine/athletic training • Fibromyalgia, Parkinson’s Disease, and other chronic conditions • Injury rehab • And much more In addition to allowing for the practice of social distancing, as recommended by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, telehealth also has other benefits for patients. As stated by the American Physical Therapy Association, just a few of these include: • Patients typically in clinical or hospital settings could be managed from their homes • Quicker screening, assessment, and referrals can improve care coordination within collaborative delivery models such as accountable care organizations or patient-centered medical homes • Telehealth can facilitate consultation between providers or in clinical education
